The Graphic Novels / Comic Books Thread


Recommended Posts

My local Landmark also has a great collection of Gaiman's Sandman series. Gotta start collecting those! In fact the store has a very impressive collection of graphic novels. I bought most of the absolute must-buy ones from the US thinking I'd never find them over here.

Okay, after hijacking the Iron Man thread several times and seeing how many people love this stuff, I decided to create a dedicated thread for everything related to comic books and graphic novels.


So let's talk people!

@O&E, I've read From Hell and watched the movie too. However, Alan Moore doesn't usually approve movie adaptations of his work.


I personally can't wait for Zack "300" Snyder's movie adaptation of Watchmen which will be out next year!

@O&E, V For Vendetta was a good movie although it did stray a bit from the book. The way the ending plays out in the book is very different. Instead they chose to put a bullet time fight to keep audiences happy...


Oh yeah and Watchmen is looking good so far! I've heard that Zack Synder refused to change the ending as requested by the studio. The studio apparently wanted a 'happier" ending considering the fact that the graphic novel ends on a bleak note.

The afro samurai anime was okay but I thought it needed a few more episodes to flesh out the universe a little more. And it's nice to see fellow Alan Moore fans crawling out of the woodwork :P Have you guys read The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?
